In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

I bring a mix of the things I love to our online therapy sessions: the peace and silence that your favorite place brings, the creativity of expression and curiosity of exploration, and a chance to move forward in life by doing something new. Therapy is an awesome space to explore yourself and undo the knot that life seems like. I knew I wanted to get into private practice, but that I wanted it reflected my values. Therapy with me is set out to be a space where you can exist with yourself, reflect on the need that brought you here, and learn to find peace with it.

What excites you most about the evolving mental health landscape?

One of the most exciting revolutions that are taking place is the idea that therapy doesn't need to be a place that is simplified to a science. It can be creative, welcoming, and individualized to each and every client. The idea that the therapist is the expert in a person they just met are gone. I have firmly believed that people have the answers and solutions to their problems, and just need the guidance to work through what keeps them from being their best selves. You are awesome can make your dreams come true, and I'll be more than happy to guide you through the problems.

What does a first session with you look like?

Before any journey, it's important to be well prepared. We will use our first session to become oriented to your internal world. This looks like an exploration of the different thoughts, feelings, and actions that you want to bring forward to start. These different parts relate to others, and the internal conflict they share between each other. There is a path towards healing, and together we will navigate it courageously and confidently in the following sessions.

Work History

You are going to through your phone if you see one more email from work. You are going to through your phone if you see one more email from work. You have had enough of these dementor-type meetings that could’ve just been an email. Then you wouldn’t be studying internet tabs on ‘How NOT To Get Fired When Finally Confronting Your Boss’ after being sucker-punched by your boss's dismissal of your concerns. You’ve crafted a workstation to calm you: a colorful plant in a pot supporting your trusty NPR desk mug with the monthly Coffee Club brew still warm. You had a creative desk, but now it's covered by the Patagonia Pants you wore months ago on your last adventure. Why are you avoiding putting them away? Putting those pants away means an end to adventures: Accepting replying 7 times in an 18 email chain because no one reads them, being talked over and ignored in meetings, and being so tempted to comment “as per my last email”. Putting those pants away means losing the sense of adventure and freedom you have always longed for but never achieved. I’m Tim, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, nature-loving poetic, and a rooted dreamer. I won’t offer you the solutions through mental tricks of changing your thoughts and ‘coping skills’ that seem more like a magic trick. I will help guide you to the freedom and adventure you’ve been missing for ages.
